«Contrasts, micro-tonalities, complements, embryo structures, drones. All this, in the casual and systematic exploration of the moment, elevates Rhythm & Drones to intemporality, thus inhabiting the present and the history, so we could freely trail this trans-temporality without preconceptions.
Rhythm I is the initiation of a savage ritual, rough, hot and bewitched by a drone submitted to the rhythm of the tabla. A cerebral hypnotism that leads the listener to the most obscure swamp, as if Frankfurt was the starting line to an urban safari.
Drone I is the hermaphrodite being par excellence, the melting pot of Hermes for the percussion and Aphrodite to the machine like glitch.
Divided in seven pieces, the avant-garde sound of Jo Jena, Frankfurt born musician, is a dive into the duality and the relentless search for breathing freedom.
The claustrophobic Novaya Zemlya, site for the investigation of weather radiations, is a white-gown convention, and the perceptional guitar droning biorhythm, the conclusion of the study observations. To conclude, not end.»
